See the business world from all angles through our astonishing choice of more than 70 electives. Complete a minimum of ten and a maximum of 12 and study the subjects that will prepare you for your dream job.
Electives allow you to network with, and learn from, students across the School community and from around the world. They are available to students from all of London Business School degree programmes and visiting international exchange students. Imagine sitting next to a successful senior manager/entrepreneur (on our Sloan programme) or a finance specialist (on our Master in Finance programme) – the cross-generational learning is unmatched.
If you have a job offer – or a completion date in mind – electives can be scheduled in intensive block weeks or spread across a term on weekdays, evenings and weekends to fit in with your schedule.
You can opt to take up to two language courses at London Business School as part of your 10-12 required electives. The School offers the following language courses: French, Spanish, Mandarin, Arabic, Portuguese, German and Russian.
Even if you have already met the language exit requirement, you are free to take another language as an elective.
Apply the knowledge you have acquired in the classroom and gain valuable business experience by undertaking a business project – a consultancy exercise delivered for a client organisation. This option can be taken during your second year. Project themes are extremely wide ranging, cutting across many business functions and industries. Past project sponsors have ranged from global corporations to NGOs, all with a significant, tangible business problem to be analysed and evaluated.
